This review is a 3 star in relative terms due to the fact that there isn't very much else available. However, the cleanliness of the room was not good at all with the water from the tap and shower smelling strongly of sewage possibly contributing to my brother me becoming ill. There is also a curfew at 10:30pm which we... More

We booked into this place and we were very happy with the whole experience. We opted for an AC room which was a good rate and was cold at night, so much so I asked for a blanket at night which was nice! The staff are great and helped us to organise a dawn boat-ride along the Ganges and also... More

My father and I stayed at Sahi Guesthouse for a few days in May, and we were both very impressed with the quality of the hostel. It was our first time in Varanasi, and the staff was incredibly helpful and patient with all our questions and requests. Located roughly 50 meters from Assi Ghat and the Ganges, it is in... More

Friendly and helpful staff always ready with a smile. Air con wasn't very effective and we only managed to get hot water the first night, but it has a nice view of Assighat and as a whole was a good hostel worth staying at.

We stayed there for three nights during first week of April 2015. It was a pleasant surprise for us to find out a friendly, relatively clean, Ganga view guesthouse at Varanasi within our budget after searching many hotels and guesthouse online. Just an email made it possible without any advance payment via credit card. So, it was hard for us... More

we were there from April 2-5, 2015. Despite a narrow, dark and unimpressive entrance, the guest house was a pleasant surprise with clean spacious room, friendly and well versed (in English and Bangla) staffs. The most important part was the stunning view of the morning Arti at Assi Ghat directly from the veranda. the calm ganga can be viewd from... More

I've traveled extensively in India. I've met hundreds of lovely people but I've also met more than my fair share of thiefs, scammers and liars. Obviously, I'm talking about a tiny minority. However, if you're the one who has fallen foul of them, then statistics are meaningless when you become the statistic. I travel independently, so safety, trust and skeptisism... More

The room we had was pretty big and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The common areas are fairly comfortable. Food is decent. These are the positive things. However, they seemed way too concerned with business and not hospitality. Wifi was down in the hotel. They told me it was down everywhere that used government wifi, but i spoke to other... More

This place is just perfect in every way. I have travelled many times in India and it's the first time I find a guesthouse that I feel so welcomed. My partner and I stayed there for 1 week and we were very sad to leave. We felt part of the family! The Sahi River Guesthouse is a special place. There... More

Although the room was basic it was well laid out with beautiful decor, attention to detail and I had my own little balcony that I could look out on and see the Ganges. They were incredibly helpful and quick to respond to any issue. They were incredibly friendly and the food is delicious and well priced with plenty of dishes... More
